The California Native Plant Society is restoring nature one garden at a time by supporting and encouraging the use of California native plants throughout our public and private landscapes. Planting California natives can help save water, reduce maintenance and pesticide use, and invite beneficial pollinators. Restore a sense of place in your community, provide important habitat for our wildlife, and help us preserve our very special ecosystem.
Use these landscape design principles to turn your space into a sustainable habitat.

On the way to Yosemite, this native habitat garden sees a lot of wildlife! See how certain flowers, grasses, trees, and a pond can bring your garden to life.
